BQA recertification is required every three years. Attendance at this workshop will recertify you for another three years. Beef Quality Assurance is a nationwide certification program to help ensure a safe, wholesome and quality beef product for consumers. Topics covered include cattle nutrition, handling, and vaccine protocols. The workshop will cover requirements 1-3 below. To be certified, producers must: Attend a BQA classroom training or complete a self-study and satisfactorily pass a written test. Attend a chute-side training. Sign a BQA Contract. There is no charge for the training but there is a $10.00 fee for the BQA manual (one per farm or family). Registration is required for a head count for dinner and the number of manuals that will be required. To register for the BQA Workshop online: http://bit.ly/2f7xFGi.
